Intaglio: 6pm – 8pm
Art on the Blockchain with Intaglio.
Intaglio is a blockchain company that provides a way for artists, collectors, and museums to verify the authenticity and provenance of artwork. Intaglio has a product that lets you digitally tag pieces of artwork and have that information stored on a blockchain. Hear from the folks behind Intaglio’s innovations in blockchain-based intellectual property management: Stuart Haber, whose cryptographic research is cited in the Bitcoin whitepaper, along with colleagues Loni Efron and James Garfinkle. They’ll discuss the Intaglio project, demo the technology, and more.
